is governor romney's that does not add up. i had to spend time last night trying to pin it down. only way to pay for $5 trillion in the tax cuts and $2 trillion in the defense spending that the military says it does not need is by asking the middle-class to pay more. i refuse to do that. i refuse to ask middle-class families to give up their deductions for owning a home or raising their kids just to pay for another million shares -- millionaire's tax cut. just to pay for more tax cuts that we cannot afford. i will never turn medicare into a voucher. governor romney double down on the proposal last night and he is wrong. no american should have to spend their golden years at the mercy of insurance companies. they should retire with the dignity they have earned. we will perform and strengthen medicare for a long haul, but reducing the cost of health care, not by asking seniors to pay thousands of dollars more, and we will keep promise of social security by taking the toponsible steps strengthen it. we will have a chance to talk about what is going on overseas, because our prosperity at home

's not just is he more down to earth than mitt romney, it's the whole package, the familiar li. they just sort of -- people connect with them even anti-obama voters. >> i think the hardest thing to do is to advice a campaign that's been running for four years. i don't work for them and they know way more about what they're facing than i do. my advice to them would be simple because they've got a lot of things to worry about. i think he needs to close the deal. i think he needs to say it's not about mitt romney anymore. i think what last night showed, it's about barack obama 6789 and i don't think they ran like they had this in the bag. i think they always figured this was going to be a close election which is why they started attacking mitt romney even before he was a nominee. i think their iv their number one imp per tive is to answer the question. and i think when they answer the question for the american people which we did in charlotte, and we've done it before, we can do it again. when they answer that question, that's when he will win reelection. >> there's no question that obama is -- t

mitt romney was down during the democratic convention. who is helping mitt romney and who is helping president obama? >> mitt romney is being held by a bunch of people. you have senator robb portman playing the role of barack obama. it is his job to get under romney's scan the way they expect obama to get under romney's skin. on the obama side, you have two white house veterans who are running the debate prep for president obama. you have senator john kerry, who has been there himself. >> what happens during these mock debates? >> they do not talk a lot about what happens during these. what they try to do is try to set a situation that is as realistic as possible for the actual debate. they do it at the same time and night the debate will take place. they set up a set just like it will look like in denver. they are used the environment. they have somebody to play the moderator and ask questions. obama does not like sound bites. they force him to give answers. they do whatever they can to simulate the debate situation. >> you quote a former chief of staff to vice-presidents al gore an

as individuals by ourselves. i just wanted to say that headlines down there in denver or romney wins, i thought that was very disingenuous of the press in denver. there was a report in the morning that romney light. that was disgraceful, what was going on in there during the day, -- during the debate, him lying like that. i want the people to know that the press was not there to do their job. they were there to sway opinion and i thought that was disgraceful for the denver press to do that. host: thank you so much. back to facebook -- the post from community builders, san bernardino -- host: if you like to post on facebook about the role of government, it is and find the c-span side. next, a democrat. caller: good morning and thank you for the opportunity. first of all, a lot of these smart people out there in the c- span family stole my thunder on a lot of points. but i think, basically, we need a moderate-to-strong federal government. because, you know, i see these right wing nuts out there in the country crying about states' rights and that they want less federal government. you

for mitt romney. does he think he has to sit down with harry reid? i think the same for president obama. i think republicans are underestimating how strong obama will be if he is reelected. hold allhink he could the republicans against an obama version of a budget deal. i think that have more leverage over members are around campaign finance issues and other things. i think obama -- even if the democrats don't control all of congress, he would have some leverage to go around leadership. people say bipartisanship, but there are two forms of bipartisanship. one is the leadership negotiant and the other is -- the premise of both of those is, there has to be personal relationships to develop before that can occur. the ambassador pointed out that governor romney will have those talents. i think president obama knows he has them, he will just have to now demonstrate the more. >> so the reality is this, we are a few short weeks away from the real work starting. be a moment ofl real clarity after the election. we will all wake up the next morning and some will be happy and some will be sad. then t

romney. john bolton said, and i wrote this one down, "it's a big mistake to grant any validity to international law even when it makes sense in our short-term interest to do so because over the long term, the goal of those who think international law means anything or ones who want to constrain the u.s.." this is the former ambassador to the u.n. and another advisor to governor romney. i say this not to make a partisan statement here but to say that it's different. we spent years in the bush years talking about an imperial role for the united states. empire means you have a power above the rules. they make rules for everybody else. that is just not what that view is in my view. with a united states that can solve its domestic problems and recapture a sense that it is an example worth emulating that there is, although they are not nearly as strong as we would like them to become a health and strength in a multinational system. >> to talk a lot about continuity. -- you talk a lot about continuity. if you set aside the past 50 years, the longest extended a continuous strain in u.s

, there is no one i would trust more than governor romney. would you be a reliable ally of a president romney? >> i think he pointed out in your initial comment about this functionality in washington. when i went down there, i thought it was dysfunctional. when i got there, it was even worse. it still is. if you see it everyday. in speaking to the independent voters of massachusetts and being that independent of voice. i spoke about 50% with my party and 50% with the other party. that is a lot different than what professor warren would do. i need not work for anybody. i cannot work for president obama, mitt romney, mitch, harry reid -- i work for the people of massachusetts. i am named the least partisan senator and united states senate. >> it is striking the youth support governor running for president, i assume. >> as i said, when it comes to dealing with the economic issues, absolutely. >> you would be a reliable ally? >> it depends on with the issue is. >> on his economic plan. you said there's no one better. >> i also would like to read the bill. because i do. a lot of people to not to read th
